BLACKPINK‘s Rosé concluded her solo debut with the release of the video “Thank You For Loving -R-” on her YouTube channel. She discussed a variety of topics from why she felt like a college student to her parents’ initial disapproval of her career.
She also delved deeper into just how grateful she is to her staff members and dancers in YG Entertainment.
Everyone including the staff members, dancers, gave me so much emotional support.
They worked endless hours, sleeping late and cramming dinner in between meetings in order to complete their agendas.
To prepare for this album, we worked countless hours to the point where I saw them more than my own family. So we became really close like family since we spent every single day together.
She genuinely loved them like her own family members, so she wanted to give back and make them feel special.
To be honest, rather than being thankful for helping me, the times we spent together felt like a gift to me and it was so enjoyable. So I think I wanted to express my gratitude to them in that sense.
Rosé gave each of them a highly personalized gift: flowers that matched their personalities and handwritten letters on their plastic wrap! She put her heart, time, and effort into each gift, and it was all worth it in her eyes!
They say it’s more enjoyable to gift someone rather than receiving it so I chose flowers thinking of that person. Even writing letters were difficult so I put lots of thought into it. I think at the end of the day, I had more fun preparing for it.
She shared towards the end of the video that she can never thank them enough, “I think I was able to accomplish everything I wanted to do thanks to the staff. I feel really thankful. Thank you everyone for your hard work.”
Of course, the staff members made sure to thank her on their own social media pages.
